The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox will finally move from its in-betweener status with the third generation of crossover. Currently, the crossover plays in the price range of compact crossovers, but stretches closer to midsize rivals.
To counter this, a new midsize crossover will be put in place, bridging the gap between Equinox and Traverse. However, today, Car and Driver has a new round of spy photos showing off the 2018 Equinox and its compact stature.
Unfortunately for our eyes, the 2018 Equinox has succumbed to a swath of camouflage still. Not many styling cues show themselves, but it’s easy to see some familiar headlamps akin to the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze. Another small giveaway is the intercooler in some photos, meaning at least one variant of Equinox will offer a turbocharged four-cylinder.
Inside, spy photographers captured a well-covered cabin, but it’s easy to see the Chevrolet dials and MyLink system peak through. The center touchscreen looks quite large in comparison to current models, but it could be our eyes playing tricks.
Chevrolet has been playing rapid fire in the product department, meaning the 2018 Equinox may not show face until next year with the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu, 2016 Cruze, 2016 Volt and 2016 Camaro keeping things fresh for now. Besides, Chevrolet will likely continue to ride the sales train that is the current-generation Equinox while it can.
